Physical description
Tall vase tapering gradually towards the plain mouth and the foot, the sloping shoulders supporting two heavy strap handles set normal to the surface, decorated with an uneven deep blue glaze applied over a yellowish semi-lustrous sufrace (saltglaze with leadglaze?). Glaze droplets have been removed from the base and there are marks of a ring-stand.
